BLUE, Period: An Interview With Ricky Rebel Comments (0)
  Ricky-Rebel Rickey-Rebel-NA Ricky Rebel Blue Album, montage, by Graphics Metropolis, web Ricky-Rebel-surprise Ricky-Rebel-Blue

Ricky Rebel is described as a sort of Adam Lambert/Lady Gaga hybrid, but in spite of his young age, he's been in the industry longer than both of them. I first encountered Ricky when he was in the boy No_authority_shirtless_group_in_underwear1band No Authority (pictured in underwear), a group signed to Madonna's Maverick (RIP!) and mentored by Michael Jackson.

I would've done anything for NA (and gave them crazy amounts of coverage) if only because their manager had once been in an episode of The Golden Girls, but I also really liked the boys themselves.

Ricky was a stand-out in the teen pop scene, a true showman, so it was not surprising to me 10 years later when he re-emerged as a solo artist with a major dance hit (“Geisha Dance”) and a thoughtfully crafted, musically sound point of view.

Now, Ricky is releasing The Blue Album, filled with adventurous dance music that isn't a guilty pleasure but an unqualified pleasure. He is a visual artist who does not overly rely on his admittedly fun razzle and on-stage dazzle, but one whose music you could enjoy with your eyes closed.

I was happy to chat with Ricky all these years after we crossed paths at the teen magazine I ran; I've always wanted to do follow-up interviews with the kids I worked with, so getting to debrief one who's gone on to bigger and better things was a real pleasure...

The big Madonna auction from Julien's Live seems to have gone well. Madonna's “Material Girl” gown, which has been altered fairly dramatically since Madonna's wearing of it 30 years ago, went for $59,375, and many non-iconic, incidental sorts of pieces like belts and blouses went for ridiculously high prices.

Veronica-MayaVeronica Maya made a boob of herself aping “Material Girl” on Italian TV last night...

Most surprising to me, the series of rather lovely Herb Ritts images (some never-seen, others seen, sold for 10 or more times their estimates. For example, a common shot of Madonna bending over, cupping her breasts, sold for $28,125—the image isn't worth a fraction of that, or shouldn't be. I don't get it?

RittsWhat about this image makes it worth $30,000???

SusanThe other big-deal entries were Madonna's A League of Their Own uniform at $31,250, Who's That Girl Tour '50s-style dress at $50,000, her  Evita ball gown at $43,750, a Desperately Seeking Susan earring at $34,375, a Susan jacket (which has been shown to be Rosanna Arquette's, not Madonna's) at an insane, Marilyn Monroe-level $257,000 and Madonna's dress from her wedding to Sean Penn, which topped out at an exciting (but anti-climactic, considering the jacket's performance) $81,250.

Tell me again how Madonna is over.

Happy 30th anniversary to “Like a Virgin”, the single. The song itself was recorded ages earlier and held because Madonna's eponymous first album was doing too well to put it to bed.

Not only is the song still evergreen, so is Madonna. Here she is just last night, at the WSJ Innovators bash looking like she wouldn't be caught dead in a gondola:

Madonna

Maybe it's all good diet? (Wink.)
